In the wealthy, seaside community of Neptune, California, Hearst College stands as a beacon of higher education, but within this idyllic and sun-drenched campus, higher education is not always what it appears. In between the beer-soaked dorm parties and all-night cram sessions, the student body is facing a terrifying threat. Luckily for them, incoming freshman and part-time private investigator Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell, "Deadwood") is used to taking on a few extra-curricular activities.
Hoping to leave the ghosts of Neptune High behind her, Veronica, along with boyfriend Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring, "Judging Amy") and best friends Wallace Fennel (Percy Daggs III, "The Guardian") and Mac (guest star Tina Majorino, "Napoleon Dynamite"), are now freshmen at Hearst College. But with each determined to soak up the college experience in their own way, it quickly becomes obvious that some ghosts are here to stay. Even their high school graduation was marred when Veronica’s unlikely ally Eli "Weevil" Navarro (Francis Capra, "C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigation") was arrested and dragged out of the ceremony in handcuffs.
Add to that the increasingly dangerous private investigator business run by Veronica’s father Keith (Enrico Colantoni, "Just Shoot Me"), and her spreading reputation around campus as a girl who can fix the unfixable, it doesn’t take long to realize the Hearst College has never faced a student like Veronica Mars.
Building on its trademark twists and turns, with a new campus, new faces and new surprises, the third season of "Veronica Mars" promises to keep both old and new fans guessing alike.
